Capturing the East Riding amateur photography competition 2014.
This was the second ‘Capturing the East Riding’ amateur photography contest. This time around, we focused the competition on the theme @Work, Rest and Play – Capturing Life in the East Riding.
All amateur photographers were invited to submit images which captured people in the East Riding – as individuals, groups or crowds – at work, rest or play. Each participant was able to enter up to four photos during the ten-week submission period. We received more than 440 entries, all of which are displayed on the council’s Flickr site: View the 2014 Capturing the East Riding entries on our Flickr account (external website)
